A Quick Look at the Brother Portable Document Scanner DS-940DW

The Brother DS-940DW Portable Scanner targets those that need access to a high-quality document scanner, but don’t have the desk space available for a standalone or “all-in-one” unit.

One of the more features packed wireless and portable document scanner options on the market right now, the DS-940DW is respected not only for its capabilities and convenience but also because of its comparatively affordable price point and reputation for reliability and durability.

Portable Design

The super lightweight and portable design of this unit stands out when you stack it up against the competition. Capable of duplex scanning (up to 15 pages per minute), it also runs off of a built-in lithium-ion battery. Likewise, it features true wireless connectivity – something we highlight a little more in-depth in just a moment.

High-Resolution Scans

Capable of incredibly high resolutions thanks to the Brother scanning technology built right in, you’ll be able to enjoy optical scan resolutions as high as 600 x 600 dpi and interpolated scan resolutions as high as 1200 x 1200 dpi.

Offering full colour and grayscale scanning input options you certainly aren’t going to feel like you are restricted in any way when you are using this portable scanner.

Perfect Wireless Connectivity

The last thing we want to highlight here is the ability of this super portable document scanner to work in a wireless environment.

The DS-940DW also allows you to wirelessly send duplex scans to any of your devices (including mobile devices). Similarly, if you don’t have access to wireless, USB connectivity is available, too.

Closing Thoughts

The Brother DS-940DW Portable Scanner is excellent for those with limited space. Likewise, the addition of an internal lithium-ion battery you can use “off-grid” while on the go and it’s easy to see why so many have added the Brother DS-940DW Portable Scanner to their toolkit already.
